Pimples (acne) can happen to anyone, but it can happen more often in people who inherit it from their parents or during teenage years. It can also be caused by stress or changes in the food you eat – this can cause chemical changes in your body or weaken the immune system - allowing germs to infect parts of your face or body, leading to pimples.
There are many ways to remove pimples. We recommend consulting your doctor before you try a new treatment method to make sure they agree that it is right for you.
Over-the-Counter Acne Treatments
For those who only have pimple problems sometimes, or if it is not very bad, an over-the-counter solution might be best. The most important thing you can do to remove pimples and prevent them in the future is to keep your face clean and free of germs. A quality anti-acne soap will resolve most acne problems.
Some lotions, masks and creams can be used on the skin to remove pimples. There are also many tools you can use to remove pre-existing pimples like blackhead removers and UV light devices.
Prescription Pimple Treatments
Many people who suffer from very bad or constant pimple problems will seek help from their doctor. After examining your skin, these doctors can prescribe special medication to remove and prevent acne, like antibiotics or retinoids. These medications can be harsh and require special use and monitoring by you and your doctor.
Natural Acne Treatments
Some people choose not to use medication to remove their acne, but treat it with lifestyle changes like regular bathing, maintaining a healthy diet, avoiding skin irritants, and reducing stress.
Remember, one of the most important things you can do to prevent acne is keep your face clean with an anti-acne soap, like Safeguard Derma Sense Anti-Acne Face & Body Bar. Keeping your face, hands, and body clean helps prevent germs from causing acne.
